Having John's old car in the shop was a never-ending fiasco
John knew it was going to be totaled, because it was a '98 Avalon - old - and wasn't worth much any more. He was looking around and had found a possible Buick at his dealership that looked like a plausible buy. John looked at his work first, because he won't buy a car unless he's REALLY sure that its had proper maintenance and services done to it. And NO accidents either. That's actually kind of hard to find.
But we were surprised at what he got
With insurance money and Christmas money, we paid only about $2,000 for it. John bought it today. It's a SERIOUS step up from his old car. It drives BETTER than an Avalon and has heated seats in the BACK as well as the front! How cool is that?
So all this waiting wasn't for not. Good came of it! John now has a LEXUS, flagship car that new is worth $80,000; we paid it free and clear and it's so much better than his old car. The customer didn't want to sell her car at all until a week ago. How about that. The Lord answered my prayers for John. God blesses us so much, it's astonishing. It encourages me that maybe all my waiting won't be for nothing either. Here's a picture of it below. I'll post more later.
P.S. The air ducks can be put on automatic to move back and forth and spread the air around! It has a great booming base sound system! There are vents in the doors, auto thermostat feature - everything about it is amazing. It's a 2001 with ~130,000 miles, but John says this kind of car can push ~350,000 without breaking a sweat.
